The Allen Institute for AI (AI2) is a leader in the field of AI, and our mission is to contribute to humanity through high-impact AI research, engineering, and applied technologies. Transparency, accessibility, and collaboration are at the core of our work. As a nonprofit organization, we are able to take on research endeavors that universities can’t and private corporations won’t.
Founded in 2014, AI2 is the largest 501c3 nonprofit AI2 research organization in the world. Our team is composed of 200+ world class AI researchers and engineers from around the globe, centered around our Seattle offices where collaborative problem solving drives our impact-related efforts.
From making AI more accessible to underrepresented communities to protecting wildlife and our oceans, we have several teams at AI2 taking on some of the world’s biggest challenges.
